don't drink this: worst green tea


Sobe Green Tea

One of Men's Health's 20 Worst Drinks!

there's nothing like a cold glass of iced tea on a sweltering hot summer day in here in the South. i remember the days when my Dad used to make fresh sun tea. all you need is glass jar, some water, and tea bags. sit it out in the blistering sun for a few hours and voila...sun steeped iced tea. i'd check on that tea every few minutes just waiting for it. stir in some sugar, pour over ice, and maybe a squeeze of lemon if you're in the mood for little twang. those were the days. 

these days, you probably get your ice tea from the corner store, and it probably comes in a glass bottle. but, before you reach for one to quench your thirst, make sure you don't drink this one!

you better off making it the old fashion way (in a brewer, over the stove, or in the sun). if you like it on the sweet side, add a little honey. i promise, there's nothing better than that!

  2. Here in Japan we have real strong bottled and canned green, oolong and black teas. I was shocked when I saw what they called 'green tea' in the US. For one thing, it's made so weakly, it isn't green. Second, they sweetened it either with something like high fructose corn syrup or sucralose.

    1. hi Charles! thanks for the message! yes...shocking. not only is the tea weak, but it lacks flavor. i hate the aftertaste...bitter from knock-off tea and way too much sugar. i love the green teas my family drinks in Singapore! sometimes, i can find the canned version at an asian market i like to visit in Houston, Texas! it's a long drive, but i always leave with bags full of awesomeness. one sip and it brings me back!
